Zverglades lands to you because I BELIEVE IN IT, because I BELIEVE
that, while it is now selling at 860, 160, and $80 an asre in ten-
aors traCts on easy monthly payments, It will be but a short time
until' it will be worth 3500 an aore. The reputation of the great
State of Florida and that State's great resources are behind the
drainage or the Everglades -- when drained they will be the Gi~ g3D
SPOT Of THL WORLD and famous the world over, and those fortunate
enough to buy now, while the price is, comparatively speaking, on
the ground floor, will, indeed, take pride in their foresight and
julga nt. The national -- I matht alamnt say international --
reputation of one of the greatest drainage engineers is behind this
great reolamation project. Please investigate it. Above ALL things
get some of it NOW and reap the benefit of near-fature values. In
my opinion, you cannot invest your money to better advantage anywhere
else In the country.

If you cannot work the land yourself, we oan show you how it
can be worked for you.

Make up a party, go down to the Everglades and see this won-
derful country for yourself. xzoursione ran out of Washington twice
a month. You will return glad you went, glad you bought.

Come to one of our stereoptioon lectures -- notice enolosed.
Make up a party among your friends and spend a pleasant, highly
profitable evening as our guests. Come and see our soil exhibits,
troptoal fruits and plants -- take a sample of our soil exhibit
away with you, have it analysed and prove to your own satisfaction
Just whaL it is and will do. We show you this wonderful country with
the aid of magnifloently colored slides, some of whih were made
from photographs taken by an employa in the Government Printing
Office. All these things will oonvinoe you that HERE is your op-
portunity -- the one you have been looking for.

Ladies are particularly welooae at our leoturee. We oan refer
them to one of their number in the Forest Service, who returned from
a visit to the Everglades enthusiastic over her purchase of twenty
aores. She is urging ber friends to buy.

We can help you to pay for your land -- come and let us explain

A year ago last August, while employed in the Interstate
Commerce Commission, the writer was looking forward to the time when
he could leave the government service for something better. I
wanted to own my own home, in a balmy, equable climate, with suffi-
oient fertile acreage surrounding it to insure me a steadily in-
oreasing income as the years rolled by.

One day, a piece of literature similar to the enclosed was
handed me by a friend in the Treasury Department, who had just re-
turned from the Everglades of Florida. I read it carefully, applied
for leave of absence and inspected the wonderful Everglades region
for myself. So Impressed was I with what I saw, and with what people
who are living upon this land and working it told me of their in-
* oomes from it, that I straightway bought 100 acres of it.

On my return to Washington, my fellow employees in the Inter-
| state Commeroe Commiasion had such confidence in my honesty and good
judgment that they bought over 1500 acres on ay report. I resigned
from the I. 0. C. in December last to sell Everglades lands. Today,
every Department in the Government service is represented among our
buyers. Hundreds of aores have been sold in Washington, and others
are constantly buying. Shrewd, hardheaded ~sehington business men,
practical, hardfisted farmers -- who KNO soils -- have bought and
are constantly buying it. YOU cannot do better than follow their
example.

Among those who have actually seen the Everglades may be named
Sthe following:

Dr. 0. M. Munoaster, The Roohambeau, Washington, D. C., Miss
B. X. Adams, Forest Service, Washington, D. C., S. P. Compher.
' 142 P Street, N. W., Washington, D. 0.,

S..Aek then what they think of Everglades lands as an investment, as a
-'h B -lace for a home, from a climatic standpoint, from an income pro-
Doing point of view. They will be glad to answer your inquiries;
d we can refer you to numbers of others.

S My purpose in bringing this subject to your attention is the
fact that. if you feel like I did, YOU also want to have some
prospects of getting away from the deadly monotony of government

The Florida Everglades Land Co.,
Chicago, Ill.
Gentlemen:--

I attended a meeting of the Florida
Everglades Home Building Assooiation at No. 809
G St. N.W., Washington, D.C., on the night of July
12th and during the meeting a reporter of the "Assoo-
iated Press'said that the Poot Offioe Department had
drawn an order (A Fraud Order I suppose) he meant,
on July 18th, the same date that the meeting was held,
but that he did not know positively whether it would
be put into effect, (but he positively stated that he-
had knowledge that such was the osee). The order was
issued against The Florida Everglades Land Co. and he
further stated that the P.O. D. had been investigating
the said Co.,as well as other Florida Everglades and
Land Companies.

You oan imagine what happened after the
above took place frightened nearly all hands present
into fits, and the meeting adjourned ingreat confusion/

As a Contract Holder in said Co. I would
appreciate a word from yu relative to the above, and
if there is no foundation for the statements made by
the party referred to, I think it would be a good idea
to re-assure the Contract Holders, and give them some
positive assurance that the Co. is on the square and
that everything will turn out as represented. I might
say that my faith in your company is absolute. I shall
continue my payments.

With best wishes, I am,
Yours very truly,

r. L. FLOYD.

Mr. Thos. E. Will,
Prest., Florida Everglades Home Builders AssBn,
809 G St. !r.W.,
Washington, D.C.

Dear Sir:--

I enclose herewith copy of a letter received from F. L.
Floyd of Cherrydale, Va. wYou will see that this letter refers to
an occurrence at the meeting of your Association held July 1Ith.
This matter surprises me and I cannot believe there is any basis
of truth in the reporter's statement, but as I understand the Post
Office Department can issue a "Fraud Order' without giving the party,
against whom the order is issued, an opportunity to defend himself,
I would like to find out, if possibleif there is any basis of truth/
in this matter.

This Company is doing business on the square and owns itsa
land without ohe dollar of indebtedness, and is__ead to _ya perfect-
~tilear.tit.le, the Contract-Holders at the tjie of the Opening. I
o not know of any basis upon which a Fraud Order could be issued, and
would not fear it if we were given an opportunity to defend ourselves.
But as the mischief is done when a Fraud Order is issued, it would re-
suit in great damage,,against whom the Fraud Order is issued, without
reference to the esccess of his subsequent defence.

^ I am not inclined to give much credit to the report referred
to by :r. Floyd, but if there is any means of getting information in
a Washington, at your command, I would consider it a great favor if you
? will get same and communicate it to me.

I wish it to be understood that I am not asking for any in-
formation that might be improperly obtained, as I would not suggest
it, nor would you consider it; but if a reporter for the Associated
Press really has knowledge of the issuance of an order in the Post
Office Department, I presume it is public property, and I would look
upon information received through your Association as dependable.

Yours very truly,


THE L 'kLADES LAlD CO.

rl. Thos. K. Will,

Dear Sir:WOOD
ter7 Rqbefore this time. I am very glad to get your letter inregard
MLr.a-nrooD A CAGO
July 19, 1911..
Mr. Thos. E. Will,
809 Street, northwest
Washington, D
Dear Sir:--.
our letter of July 17th received. On the same date I wrote



I am sure no other findings could result in an investigation of our
Company; but I believe the Post Office Department can condemn us
first and take testimony afterwards, which is the danger in this sort
of a situation. But I do not believe the Post Office Department
would take this action without giving us some opportunity to be rep-
resented, unless the charges against us were shown to be well founded
and the offense flagrant, and I am certain that no such representations
oan be truthfully made against this Company..
For the benefit of the Home Builders Association, I send you
Sherewith printed copies of the Abstracts of our land in Lee and Palm
Beach Counties, which Abstracts are certified by an Abstract Company.
Our Attorneys in Colorado springs and Jacksonville have examined these
Abstracts and give an opinion that our title is perfeot.

The question of the Opening and distribution of the land is one
that cannot be answered definitely- at this time. We desire to have it .:\
as soon as it is to the best interests of the Contract Holders, but
I do not see that it would be to their advantage to have the Opening
until the land is ready for use. The Opening cannot be held on the
land itself until the State has completed a surVey and we have had
Time thereafter to plat and stake it. The prapr State officials have
been authorized to make the survey as soon as is practicable. Of course
we could hold an Opening from a plat of the land, the. same as the Flor-
ida Fruit Lands Co. did, but it is a question whether this will be sat-
isfactory to the majority of our Contract Holders. I do not see what
could be gained by it, as they could not get actual possession of the
land any sooner. If the Opening was held in that way Clearance Re-
ceipt holders would have deeds for a certain described tract of land,
K but they could not take possession of and use it until the surveying,
staking and drainage were completed.
We would be very glad to hear from you further if anything de-
velops in connection with the Post Office matter referred to in your
letter of July 17th.
Yours very truly,

A year ago last Augnst, while employed in the Interstate
Commerce Oommission, the writer war looking forward to the time when
She could leave the government service for something better. I
Wanted to own my own hone, in a balmy, equable climate, with muffi-
oient fertile acreage surrounding it to insure me a steadily in-
oreasing income as the years rolled by.

One day, a piece of literature similar to the enolosed was
i handed me by a friend in the Treasury Department, who had just re-
turned from the Everglades of Florida. I read it carefully, applied
for leave of absence and inspected the wonderful Everglades region
for myself. So Impressed was I with what I saw, and with what people
" who are living upon this land and working it told me of their in-
oomes from it, that I straightway bought 100 aores of it.

On my return to Washington, my fellow employees in the Inter-
state Commeroe Oommission had suoh oonfidenoe in my honesty and good
judgment that they bought over 1500 aores on my report. I resigned
from the I. 0. C. in Deoember last to sell Everglades lands. Today,
every Department in the Government service is represented among our
buyers. Hundreds of aares have been sold in Washington, and others
are constantly buying. Shrewd, hardheaded Washington business men,
practical, hardfisted farmers -- who KNOW soils -- have bought and
are constantly buying it. YOU cannot do better than follow their
example.

Among those who have actually seen the Everglades may be named
the following:

Dr. 0. 1. Munoaster, The Roohambean, Washington, D. C., Miss
". B. E. Adams, Forest Service, Washington, D. C., 8. P. Compher.
S... 38142 P Street, H. W., Washington, D. 0.,

SAsk them what they think of Everglades lands as an investment, as a
plaoe for a home, from a olimatio standpoint, from an inoome pro-
Soing point of view. They will be glad to answer your inquiries;
d we can refer you to numbers of others.

A year ago last August, while employed in the Interstate

he could leave the government service for something better. I
wanted to own my own home, in a balay, equable climate, with suffl-
olent fertile aoreage surrounding it to insure me a steadily In-
oreasing income as the years rolled by.

One day, a pleoe of literature similar to the enclosed was
handed an by a friend in the Treaury Department, who had just re-
turned from the Everglades of Florida. I read it carefully, applied
for leave of absence and inspected the wonderful Everglades region
for myself. So impressed was I with what I saw, and with what people
who are living upon this land and working it told me of their in-
oomes from it, that I straightway bought 100 aores of it.

On my return to Washington, my fellow employee in the Inter-

judgment that they bought over 1100 aores on my report. I resigned
rrom the I. 0. 0. in Deoeaber last to sell Everglades lands. Today,

A year ago last August, while employed in the Interstate

he could leave the government service for something better. I
wanted to own my own home, in a balmy, equable climate, with suffi-
oient fertile acreage surrounding It to insure,me a steadily in-
creasing income as the years rolled by.

One day, a piece of literature similar to the enclosed was
handed me by a friend in the Treasury Department, who had just re-
turned from the Everglades of Florida. I read it carefully, applied
for leave of absence and inspected the wonderful Everglades region
for myself. So impressed was I with what I saw, and with what people
Swho are living upon this land and working it told me of their in-
comes from it, that I straightway bought 100 aores of it.

On my return to Washington, my fellow employes in the Inter-
a state Commeroe Commission had suob confidence in my honesty and good
judgment that they bought over 1500 aores on my report. I resigned
from the I. C. C. in December last to sell Everglades lands. Today,
every Department in the Government service is represented among our

Dear Sir:

Thin Association is oeaidering the matter of cultivating

a tract of 10 to 30 aore on the aneol traot this fall. In

addition, them are others hero who talk of cultivating from 10 to

30 aoms more on the sam tract. We are anxious to knowwhether

the p4teriser can bautilized in pulverizing ouch lands a the

sboTevght desire to cultivate.

We understand that you new have thsachine and are planning

to pulverize soma 200 acr.

This raises the question a to whether the maoine would be

available for any other work this fall either-be re or after the

ig awater. If so when could it probably be had and at what cost?

Should the grass be I rned off beforrtbe maching.is used,

and if so will it be practicable to burn the grass this fall? How

many aoros per day will the maohine pulverize?

If the grass can not be burned mast it be sowed off, and if

so atwhat oost per acre?

Theb Venola traotr of which I write is the 80 acres on the

north side of the canal and in the northwest corner of Section 2?.

Iwent all over it a few weekb ago and found it in good condition

-r. Philip 8. Delany,
Long 2Building,
Kansas City, 'To.

Dear Mr. Delany:-

11r. Clarance H. Childs came in yesterday and signed
up the enclosed ngte for $4fD.00, covering the balance due
on his ten acre tract. He seems just atout to oomn into
a considerable amount of money, on receipt of which, probably
in two or three weeks, he rlans to take up the enclosed note.
He makes it now however that he may make sure of his lot.

I enclose copy of list of our choices of lot. Miss
Strong, as you wrote us, gets second choice; our office
should have the next choice in the column, and rr. Ohilds,
having lost one choice by his delay, should have the next
Suntaken choice.

Mrs, Childs, wife of the above, makes the fifth in
this group, as pointed out on the accompanying sheet.

Our lot may stand again for the present in the name
of the washington Office. After a little we shall undertake
to determine among ourselves as to who gets a given lot.

Sincerely yours,












r-~.r~~

One day, a piece of literature similar to the enclosed was
handedd -b.;b f-pd. ip the treapyy eqgament, who had just re-
turned from the OVerglades of Florida. I read it oareftlly, applied

Uho.are living upan this land and working it told a of their in-

A year ago'last Auguest, while employed in the Interstate
Scomeroe omission, the writer was looking forward to the tme when
he aould leave the govetaimet merriors for. omtaag better. I
"pnted to own my own home, in a balay, equable climate, with euffi-
o let fertile acreage surronttdngit to tamure s a steadily ln-
evereing income a the years rolled by.

One day, a piece of literature similar to the enolosed wa
banded e by a friend in the Treasury Departmnt, who had Just re-
turned fro tha Iver'lades of Florida. I read it carefully, applied
for leave of abenoe and iAspeoted the aon erful Zverglades regtoa
for myself. So impressed a I with shat I saw, and with what people
r bwho"are living upon this er and working it told as of their in-
oomes from it, that I straightway bought 100 aores of it.

Ss On my return to Washington, my fellow employee in the Inter-
tate oammeroe Obaission had oh oonfidenoe in my honesty and good .
-*faldgment that they bought over 1500 asres ao my report. I resigned
from the I.. in December last to well Everglades lands. Today,
Severe Department in the Governmet service is represented among our
buyers. Hundreds of ares bave been old in fashington, and others
are constantly buying. Shred, hardheaded Washington business men,
practicall, hardfited farmers -- who 10KN soils have bought and

A year ago last August, while employed in the Interstate
Commeroe Commission, the writer was looking forward to the time when
he could leave the government service for something better. I
wanted to own my own home, in a balmy, equable climate, with suffi-
cient fertile acreage surrounding it to insure me a steadily in-
oreasing income as the years rolled by.

One day, a piece of literature similar to the enclosed was
handed e by a friend in the Treasury Department, who had just re-
turned from the Everglades of Florida. I read it carefully, applied
for leave of absence and inspected the wonderful Everglades region
for myself. So impressed was I with what I saw, and with what people
who are living upon this land and working it told me of their in-
oomes from it, that I straightway bought 100 aores of it.

On my return to Washington, my fellow employes in the Inter-
state Commeroe Commission had suob confidence in my honesty and good
judgment that they bought over 1500 acres on my report. I resigned
from the I. C. C. in December last to sell Everglades lands. Today,
a every Department in the Government service is represented among our
buyers. Hundreds of aores have been sold in Washington, and others
are constantly buying. Shrewd, hardheaded Washington business men,
practical, hardfisted farmers -- who KNOW soils -- have bought and
are constantly buying it. YOU cannot do better than follow their
example.

Among those who have actually seen the Everglades may be named
the following:

SB Dr. 0. M. Munqaster, The Roohambeau, Washington, D. C., Miss
-B. 1. Adams, Forest Service,'Washington, D. C., S. P. Compher.
.7? 2142 P Street, N. W., Washington, D. C.,

.Ask them what they think of Everglades lands as an investment, as a
'lace for a home, from a olimatio standpoint, from an income pro-
uoing point of view. They will be glad to answer your inquiries;
d we can refer you to numbers of others.

7 Q My purpose in bringing this subject to your attention is the
fact that. if you feel like I did, YOU also want to have some
prospects of getting away from the deadly monotony of government

Dr. fhoa. 3 Will,
809 0 8t. N.W..
WaIhngton. D.C.

Dear Sir:
Replying to your favor of the 17th instant. I.
beg to answer your questions in the order given.
1. We take contraots for pulverizing BTerglade land.

2. We would take contracts for ten aores up, if not
too far from where the machine ins that ia within a die-
tanoe of five miles.
S. Our charge per aore runs from tL.L tJer sore-
thoroughly pulverized, depending on the location iand aie.
4. The maiden eano sad saw grass i all chopped up
and the roots torn out of the ground. Frpotioally all the
maiden oane will be killed. We agree to take out all the
aw grass and maiden oanes in fact we do eli the work of
cleaning up and pulverizing the land except clearing the
wood hamaooka.
5. The beat time for this work to be done will be
when it isa I and we think this time will be about Jaxam-
bar or De&jNT*. this will be ample time for you to make
your winjtaF ero. -
It &oemanot matter when yeo out the saw graas. We
generally burn it and wait for a suitable time with the high
wind and after it la burnt it hope up very well with the
pulveriser. tI it does not burn well- the beat thing to do
would be to get a horse rake- rake it into wind roaw and burn
it.
We have temporarily leased our machine to Kr. Earle,
subject to recall at any time and if you wish to make a oon-
tract for this work- we shall be glad to take it up further
with you.
Yours truly,
MAN IEHGIIEMING & CONSTRUCTION CO.

Dear Mr. Wll

Your letter of the 24th izst. has been received,
and we note what you state in regard to contract held by
Kiss Mary C. Flaner.

I cannot understand how it is that Miss Fanner has
received no reply to her letters. I hare written her twice
within the past math, explaining that we were not in posi-
tion to issue her a deed to the land she is entitled to
until the return of Mr. Price. I further assured her that
we would take the matter up in the near future, and request-
ed her patience for a little longer.

Very truly yours,
